lillbet: (Picspam!)
(Finally got all the South Dakota pictures up, including the one of the rabbit with horns. Not kidding. Read part 6. Also, I ran out of disk space for pictures on LJ so I'll be crossposting from here. Yay! ETA: And now comments are enabled. WHEEEEEE!)

After Mt. Rushmore, I decided I was going to head for Devil's Tower. So I left South Dakota in my rearview:

Bye=bye! )

So even though I removed this post from LJ, I'm still out of disk space on LJ, and I can't figure out how to post stuff here without putting things in Photobucket first, which is just a frickin' hassle. Also, I'm not paying for LJ right now- it's the principle of the DAMN SITE NOT WORKING PROPERLY, LIKE, WHENEVER I WANT IT TO, so... taking a break for a bit because the frustration is just... so much right now. Kisses!

Cued up London Boulevard with There Be Dragons after. Redbox is my new cinematic religion. Let us watch. :p

Last night was not a ton of fun. The upshot is that my mother wants me to do something that will be my career (um, DUR. SO DO I.), my dad is just worried about me in general, and the two of them are doing a crap job at dogsitting because Duchess is definitely backsliding a bit. *lol*

After good dinner and some arguing, copious red wine, and ice cream, I crawled into an uncomfy guest bed to stay the night. This morning at an ungawdly hour, Duchess kicked up a fuss- she'd really messed her kennel. I cleaned her up, cleaned it up, and settled on the couch and let her chew on my fingers for a bit. Truth is, she's to young to be trained and the aunt and uncle aren't doing it right- her kennel is too big, and there's too much space in it for her to be grossed out by her own... output.

Dad came down and made coffee and amends. Mom can down and proffered olive branches.

Stepped on the dog- something you always think is going to happen with a dog that size. She's okay. Let her lick my face to make up for it. I call her "D" or "Leddy D" (like in Amelie).

We've reached an understanding, the three of us, so I think things will be fine. Just want to get things going because the sitting around is going to drive me mad. The good thing is that they are taking back the bed and the dresser and the chair- all furniture from my grands and great grands that I don't want to tote around with me and don't want to junk or sell.

At one point, Dad said, "I've always sort of felt like you were a California person." Which was nice. I hope I am, I really do. 

FYT- puppy pics:

lillbet: (Have a happy day!)
1.) Raining today. Feeling sort of calm and content. Heading out for a burger and a shake in a bit. Maybe hit up Redbox tonight for Drive and 50/50. Or getting a swimsuit- Old Navy is stocking swimwear now and it's CUTE. All retro 'n' stuff.

2.) Sent my landlady a more "me" thank you because my initial email was all SRS BSNS and she reiterated that she'll miss me. :)

3.) A younger cousin of mine is getting married in late summer. He and his fiance are fun- might go down there one more time before I go. I hope they still invite me to the wedding, because I'll HAPPILY fly, or drive, back for it. Don't want to miss out, but I definitely won't stay another *counts on fingers* 3-4 months just for that. Seems like there is always something, yes?

4.) Made red velvet cupcakes for the blog I'm doing with [personal profile] roh_wyn and I think folks were a little turned off by the frosting- boiled frosting rather than cream cheese. And I didn't boil the milk and flour long enough, so I had to add some things and in the end I had some leftovers. Ah well. They'll make good cakepops with chocolate frosting and chocolate couverture.

5.) Sun is starting to come out, so it feels more like this:
